Making islands smart, green and prosperous
There are more than 2 200 inhabited islands in the EU, many of which depend on expensive fossil fuel imports for their energy supply. The large-scale deployment of local renewable energy sources and storage systems would contribute to decarbonising the energy system. However, this endeavour requires flexible solutions, new tools and efficient frameworks that can be adapted to local needs. The EU-funded MAESHA project will develop smart and flexible methods of storage and energy management as well as modelling tools and technical systems with the aim of promoting the transition towards sustainable energy. Designed with respect to the interests of the local communities, adapted to the market and ready to be disseminated, the new approaches will serve as a demonstration for the future decarbonisation of the Mayotte and other European islands.
